Two dresses worn by the late princess Diana were sold at an auction house in Beverly Hills Sunday for a total of $276,000, the seller announced.
According to Julien's auction house, the first dress - a black crepe evening gown with diamante paste embroidery on the short-sleeved top inspired by Indian motifs - went for $144,000.
It was purchased for Diana's 1992 visit to India, when she accompanied her then-husband, Prince Charles on the trip.
The second dress - a light blue silk chiffon, strapless, floor-length gown and accompanying stole - was sold for $132,000.
It was worn by Diana three times, including at the Cannes film festival in 1987.
The identities of the buyers have been kept confidential.
